Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (328 votes)

This satisfying vegetarian, sweet potato soup is inspired by the flavors of West African peanut soup. We like the added zip of hot green chiles, but they can sometimes be very spicy. It’s best to take a small bite first and add them to taste. Try chopped peanuts and scallions for a different garnish. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette.

Delicious and easy to make. I did put all the ingredients in the blender so that my children wouldn't see the chili's and onions and think I like it better that way. My son loved it and with a side salad it was quite filling. Definitely a comfort food.

Absolutely DELICIOUS....I too added cinnamon to change the flavor a bit for younger kids, but it was great...add a little design of creme fraiche on the top and it looks even more sophisticated. Will be making it over and over!

Did everything as the recipe required except for the addition of allspice but it still was delicious. Dip dry crispy baguette and they both taste even better!

I made this today, and am amazed at how great it tastes - especially since I normally don't care for sweet potatoes!

If you have a hard time finding the canned sliced green chilis, what I did was use only 2 cups of the low sodium vegetable juice, and 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilis.
